While the entire nation is fighting against the spread of this fatal Corona virus by staying at home, maintaining social distancing, ONGC and its energy soldiers are functioning 24*7 to ensure production and delivery of oil and gas, one of the most essential need to the citizens of the country.
ONGC as India’s National Oil company, is the energy anchor of the country and has always in the past risen to the needs of the hour. This time the need of the nation is much greater as it concerns the health, safety and lives of our citizens.
